Did you know that butane expands to 288 times its size? That means that one can of butane is enough to fill a 1,400 square foot home with butane vapor. Kind of important stuff to know so your team doesn’t blow up or you need to testify in court. In this course, you’ll learn everything there is to know about butane hash oil (BHO), BHO labs and safety procedures.

Closed Loop Butane Hash Oil Labs & Winterization

Don’t understand how closed loop labs work? I’ll break it down for you. I’ll also teach you about all of the refinement techniques like “winterization” and vacuum purging. Don’t understand why people’s refrigerators keep blowing up and catching houses on fire? We will explain that too.

You’ll also learn the ins and outs of all THC extraction techniques. When you investigate these cases, you might find other extraction methods, so it’s important to become an expert in those too. When you are done with this class, you will know how to handle these cases step by step so you can truly say you are an expert in your field.

Most important of all, though, is that I’ll teach you how to be safe when you are doing these investigations. After learning the investigative details of butane hash oil labs, we will delve into butane behavior and the things that you are doing now that can be deadly to your team when investigating these cases. We will also go over safety equipment you’ll need and procedures to follow if you show up to a lab that has already ignited and there is an active fire and crime scene.

This is the same class I have given to over 5,000 police officers in 32 states over the past three years. Now you have the chance to get that same training at your own pace on your own time.
